I always see these discounts (now almost annual) and think, "Man, this is it, they're clearing out the closets for the new stuff." And then another year goes by without an update.

Anyway. Great lenses at a good price. Picked up my 50mm 1.4 last year with those discounts.

Not good prices by any stretch of the imagination.

50mm f/1.4 was $279 a month ago
85mm f/1.8 was $309 a month ago
16-35L was $1329 a month ago

And also this is the same price at every other major dealer.

I think it's a bit misleading to post these as "deals" and you are misleading people who aren't aware of the price history.

JBL, Have you seen those prices outside of during the Christmas season? Were they at the price you listed in January?

Yes, they were this price until the 2nd week of January.

And then Adorama had the 85mm f/1.8 for $319 on January 27th.

You just need to wait for a real deal. This is not a deal.

Thanks JBL,
I've been waiting for a while and was about to buy a refurbished 85mm f/1.8 from Canon with a one year warranty yesterday for $335.99 yesterday but they are now out of stock. Then this comes along. I'm sure there will be lower prices in the future, but personally, I'm done waiting. I want the lens now :-)

Yeah, they aren't gonna go back down until another rebate program comes out; which is usually early summer at the earliest. So, if that $30 savings is that important, wait, if not, you get it now vs waiting til they drop
